ok story time + word of advice so buckle up kids
for the last 2+ years i never once got anything ‘worse’ than an A in english because it’s my best subject and quite frankly, i slay this class, i own it.
anyway two weeks ago i took an exam in english while i was sick, i felt like shit but i took it anyway and today i got it back and i got an A- and now comes the funny part: i felt like shit for it lmao i was all ‘not to be dramatic but my life is over, shakespeare could use this as inspiration for a tragedy, literally why did this happen to me? what the fuck have i done i fucked up’ and i felt SO bad and angry at myself and the teacher and sad and annoyed, you name it.
the thing is, that is literally so fucked up? because an A- is amazing, especially when you managed that while being sick. it’s a bomb ass grade, people would be lucky to have that so long story short:
do not turn into me, do not become good old ali ok?
work your ass off for your dreams, study so hard and get those sweet, amazing grades!! because it is important!!! but not important enough to let it consume you and thrust you into the dysfunctional perfectionist void, because let me tell you it ain’t fun here and it can fuck you up real good
